Who are they?
The Red Letters are a young party band with a fast-growing reputation thanks to their polished, energetic and entertaining live performances. Despite averaging in their early 20’s, band members are highly competent musicians with experience beyond their ages. They have also clocked an impressive number of gigging hours together, creating that special chemistry which helps turn a good night, into a great night.

The Red Letters boast two graduates of the prestigious Brighton Institute of Modern Music as well as a Popular Music BA (Hons) graduate. Their extensive performance experience includes weddings, functions and music festivals including Strawberry Moon, Live Fest and Bearded Theory (Best Small Festival 2013). The result is four confident and experienced musicians who know how to work a crowd. The Red Letters' previous clients include The National Trust and Severn Trent Water.

What sort of music do they play?
The band are regularly complimented on the variety, quality and uniqueness of their set list. From Elvis, The Beatles, Stones and The Monkeys, to Green Day, McFly and more contemporary acts such as The Killers, Bastille, Walk the Moon and Bruno Mars. Covering a wide range of genres from classic rock, to pop, and all the way from funk to punk! The Red Letters can play to a mixed crowd and leave everyone satisfied.

The Red Letters are happy to play music through their PA system between sets either from your device, or from theirs via their Spotify premium account.
